The central node of Vries is the traffic roundabout on the highway that cuts through the village. An ideal new location for the bank: at the central 'square' of the village opposite the church. This location is a bit large for the bank. Thence the pronounced rooftop of the bank hall, to let this single-layer building to fit in the scale of the lot. First a landmark for passers by. Secondly, the use of many natural and local materials as red brick, stones, wooden beams and a vegetated roof, framed in the green countryside.
